The STEELMAN 422117 Lube Swab is an ideal tool to use when applying lubricant when mounting and dismounting tires for changes or repairs. The soft cotton filler is held tight at the core by the looped wire handle and spine but is loose at the edges, allowing it to hold more lubricant than denser swabs. With the ability to hold a larger volume of lubricant it is easier to apply it using fewer and more even passes around the rim and tire.
IDEAL FOR LUBRICANT - Ideal for applying mounting lubricant to tires and wheels
SOFT COTTON HEAD - Swab head is made of soft cotton that will not scratch wheels
APPLIES EVENLY - Loose filler around a stiff wire spine allows more control to apply lubricant evenly
HOLDS LARGE VOLUME - The loose cotton filler retains a large volume of lubricant to allow for good application with less stopping to reload the swab
